I bought this lawyers cabinet from our local old home society for $80. Stripped the paint off and then sealed it with butcher block cutting board sealant. I then lined it with 1/4" spanish cedar planks and made a removable shelf from 3/4" spanish cedar supports and 1/4" spanish cedar shelf. I did not seal the cedar before anyone asks! The cedar cost me just about $140 with just a little left over for a potential smaller shelf above. You can check out the pictures, didn't take nearly enough.
